Today is a Good Day

Ingrid Z. Aanestad

”It rains when she wakes up, hard rain against the windows, she’s lying in bed and she can hear it and even though it’s already late morning, she turns around facing the wall and tries to go back to sleep. Her head is heavy. It is warm up in the balcony room. The little heat that the electrical heater by the window gives off rises up to her, to where she is lying. Down on the floor it is freezing cold. Maria falls asleep. When she awakes it is no longer raining.”

Maria is a student from out of town; she lives in a small studio apartment in a big city. Maria likes to sleep with the lights on. Maria is looking for a girl she has seen who looked just like her, the girl was knocking on a green wooden door. Maria decides to knock on the green door. Today is a Good Day gives an intimate and clear description of Maria, of moments and experiences that add up to Maria’s life.
